Back from Branson

Went for a couple of night this time. We traded some time saying no to a timeshare for the hotel. Easy enough. If we were resort people when we travelled, and had the money of course, it actually looked like a good deal.

Anyway, enough of that. The walking was not bad. The weather cooperated very nicely. It was not too hot and we got a couple of showers that also helped keep it cool(er). At any rate, it was quite a lot of fun. We got to swim in the hotel pool (which the kids always love) and I think that was more tiresome than the walking itself. I had three comments about my walking stick this time and I don't really know how to respond to it (them). Certainly I did not blow them off, but tried to make light of it. It certainly helps more then I can explain in a few seconds, but I don't know exactly how to approach it. Julie and I thought the best answer would be one that may take them off guard and be a bit funny too. I welcome suggestions but we thought it would be great if anyone asks something... "Do you hike?" or "What do you use that for?" I could reply "If I didn't hold it up, it would just fall down and lie there. I can't have that, Can I?" and leave it at that, of course with a grin. Julie and I sure laughed at the thought (perhaps we are the weird ones!).

Back at home is a nice feeling. I can hardly wait to sleep in my own bed.

You can always tell them it's an accessory to your pipe. You always wanted to grow up and be an old man!
